[Via Satellite 3-17-2015] SES and Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) have signed capacity deals for services on three SES satellites. These agreements are part of a strategic partnership to deliver In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) and services to airline passengers around the world.
Under the deal, GEE will use Ku-band wide beam and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spot beam capacity aboard the SES 12, SES 14 and SES 15 satellites. The three spacecraft, currently under construction, are scheduled for launch in 2017.
SES 14 and SES 15 offer a complementary coverage over busy air travel routes across the Americas and North Atlantic regions, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, while SES 12 will serve the aeronautical market across Asia and the Middle East.
“Our collaborative work with GEE is aimed at enabling this in-flight connectivity solutions leader to go anywhere it wants to grow and innovate to meet the needs of airlines and the connectivity demands for passengers on the move,” said Ferdinand Kayser, chief commercial officer of SES.
